Owen, you had me at ‘hello’

So Steely Dan accused Owen Wilson’s new movie of having stolen its plot from one of their songs. Mr. Wilson responded most excellently:

In a statement released by his spokeswoman, Ina Treciokas, Wilson said: “I have never heard the song ‘Cousin Dupree’ and I don’t even know who this gentleman, Mr. Steely Dan, is. I hope this helps to clear things up and I can get back to concentrating on my new movie, ‘HEY 19.’ ”
